Tratos & Dubai Port Authority cooperation
Tratos was pleased to supply its Tratosflex-ESDB® cable to be used in the cranes operating in the port. Tratosflex-ESDB is ideal for container cranes such as these, which operate at speeds up to 300 mt/m, as it has been designed to combat the common problem of twisting that affects cables reeling at high speed.
